Abstract [en]

The Living Earth Simulator (LES) is one of the core components

of the FuturICT architecture. It will work as a federation of

methods, tools, techniques and facilities supporting all of the FuturICT

simulation-related activities to allow and encourage interactive exploration

and understanding of societal issues. Society-relevant problems

will be targeted by leaning on approaches based on complex systems

theories and data science in tight interaction with the other components

of FuturICT. The LES will evaluate and provide answers to realworld

questions by taking into account multiple scenarios. It will build

on present approaches such as agent-based simulation and modeling,

multiscale modelling, statistical inference, and data mining, moving

beyond disciplinary borders to achieve a new perspective on complex

social systems.
